SCAN TO MODEL WORKFLOW IN 4 EASY STEPS
1. Scan & Upload
After collecting patient data using an intraoral scanner, save scans as STL files and import the selected files into our easy to use dental printing software.
Choose your printer & resin. All EPAX printer and resin settings will be automatically populated for you with just one click. After choosing your settings, upload your files onto the user-friendly Chitubox dashboard. Use the easy operation tools to design and prep your models. Then slice and save the file.
3. Export & Print
Download the save sliced file onto the USB stick included with your printer or feel free to send via ethernet if preferred. Insert USB into the printer, add resin then hit print.
4. Post Process
Wash, dry and post-cure printed parts. We recommend dropping the prints directly into a container of IPA and let sit for 3 minutes before drying/post curing. Use the DX cure pro to cure your prints in one minute or less. These parts can then be used intraorally or to produce various indications.

LET OUR CUSTOMERS DO THE TALKING FOR US
Dr. Will Simpkins
"I received my printer about 3 works ago. It has worked flawlessly. At my work I use a big SLA 3D printer. I have been using it for over a year now. I will place mine up against it any day. It is 1/2 the cost, larger build platform and consumables are cheaper, list goes on!"
Dr. Steve Haverkos
“I am an orthodontist who has been working with two EPAX printers for 10 months. I have used many other better known brand 3D printers but I have never found one as easy, reliable, and simple to use as EPAX. I trained my staff how to use the printer in a day! We have stopped taking impressions and completely transitioned our busy practice to fully digital. My staff and patients are less stressed due to not having to deal with alginate impressions. I highly recommend EPAX!”
Dr. Jamie Sacksteder
"Setting up my printer was a breeze and I have done multiple successful prints right out of the box. I have made orthodontic models and retainers that fit like a glove. Very happy with the product. Thank you again for the great customer service."
